this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the yawning fiscal of this ivory for me -- it this goal -- fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual observer is that
. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new mexico. mr. bingaman: are we in a quorum call, mr. president? the presiding officer: we are not. mr. bingaman: mr. president, earlier today, the senate voted to grant permanent normal trade relations to russia by a vote of 92-4 and i strongly supported that bill. to extend pntr to russia, we had to repeal an out-of-date policy that was adopted during the cold war. that is, the jackson-vanik amendment. i want to speak briefly on the senate floor this afternoon about another out-of-date policy of the cold war that i believe should be ended, and that is the trade embargo on cuba. i have spoken about this many times in the past, along with senator pell, senator dodd and many others. i argued against the helms-burton act in 1996. for the past 50 years, our country's policy toward cuba has been essentially stagnant. the core element of our policy, our foreign policy, which is the embargo, has authorized in a proclamation signed by president kennedy on february 3, 1962. that's 51 years ago. at that time, president kennedy justified the emba
of capital gains. the capital gains tax will go up 10%. host: john from new mexico. caller: thank you for taking my call. you read my tweet just a little while ago. i want to continue on this theme of the lower capital gains rate. this low capital gains rate is a way the uber rich use to control to give themselves their own tax rate and their own general tax category to there everything in. they can lessen their participation in our democracy. i have investments, too. to only have to pay a 15% rate on that income seems silly to me. i pay normal taxes and normal social security. there is no need to incentivize capital formation these days. host: are you retired? caller: i am still working. host: this is a story from "the wall street journal." host: "families with adult children." how can you take advantage if you're a couple and one spouse earns more than the other? guest: i would not want to delve into that. host: we will move on to jim in north carolina. go ahead, jim. caller: thank you for taking myy call. the lowering to the $1 million cap. my wife and i have never made more than $
nine auto plants in mexico, but nissan, honda, mazda and audi will be opening new plants. bmw has. crazy, huh? bmw. over the time frame, mexican auto production is expected to surge from 2.5 million vehicles a year to 3.5 million. i think that's low versus what will ultimately be. and kansas city southern and kansas city southern believes they will have 60% market share. kansas city southern should benefit from the auto rebuild that's needed in the wake of hurricane sandy. can't get this stuff to america fast enough. united states fast enough. thanks to the strength of the economy, the increasing volumes with declining costs. the gross margins are expanding. how much do we love that in a rail? however, the auto industry only affects about 18% of kansas city southern's revenues. they do have some coal exposure, something that's crushed a great many american railroads, we know that because we have backed away from a lot of rails because of the coal. but they have something the other railroads don't have, consistently high growth, not that low single digit stuff and not susceptible t
are low and it's easy to ship the cars they build to the u.s. via the rails. >> all aboard! >> yep. mexico's probably the cheapest place on earth to make stuff to send to the united states. and speaking of the rails, the best way to play this theme is with my new favorite railroad stock that i'm unveiling tonight, kansas city southern, ksu. at a time when many rails are struggling, kansas city southern is thriving, stock at $77 and change, just $6 off its highs. why, oh, why do i like this company so much? simple. geography. take a look at this map of the company's rail network, okay? kansas city southern is the new intercontinental railroad. except unlike the one you studied in school, it runs from north to south instead of east to west. it has 6,600-mile network, it's pretty much evenly divided between the united states and mexico and the network is only one interchange away from every single major market in north america. believe me when i tell you, this area is just booming. i go down there a lot and i cannot believe how strong it is. kansas city southern got into mexico in 1996 when t
